Remember how much time it took to crest your arrows with paint?  How about all the mess that was made from dipping the shafts?  I used to crest my arrows so the fletching would stick better.  But because of the cresting process, I could never get the same amount of paint on each arrow, thus leaving me with un-equal arrow weights.  What was needed was something that was inexpensive, easy to apply, and would allow better fletching adhesion. 

 Well the folks at Easy Eye Archery Products have taken the frustration out of cresting, with their EZE-Crest arrow wraps. These waterproof wraps are made of a high performance vinyl, with an exclusive 3M adhesive backing that works on Carbon, Wood, Aluminum, and Fiberglass shafts.  The wraps come in two sizes: 1.325 X 7 for hunting arrows and 1.325 X 4 for 3D arrows.  As far as weight is concerned, the hunting wraps are only 10.6 grains and the 3D wraps are 5 6 grains each, which leaves each arrow weighing the same.  A great thing about these wraps is it will improve adhesion by 10 times over gluing to any style of shaft, and you can use any type of fletching adhesive that you want. Also, the company states that they will last for three to five years.  Every package comes with detailed written and pictured instructions for flawless application.

Before you begin, ensure you clean your arrows with either acetone or alcohol, to ensure there are no oils or grease present.

First, peel the wrap off of the paper and lay the sticky side up on a mouse-pad, or similar cushion type surface. Take your arrow and align the nock end with the wrap. Then slide the arrow until it makes contact with the wrap. This should be right below your nock of your arrow.  Once contact is made, move the main body of the arrow up until it touches the wrap.
Step 1

Second, Press firmly and roll the arrow shaft across the wrap pushing away from you.

Step 3

Third, rub the arrow to ensure it is adhered to the shaft completely, and you are done. In less than 30 seconds you have a crested arrow.
Done Deal as easy as 1, 2, 3.

 Ease of use: 5 out of 5

The pictures show the proof on this one!! 

Affordability: 4.9 out of 5

During my 20 years of bow hunting, I have gone through countless numbers of vanes and feathers due to the glue not holding them on the arrow. Since the company states the wraps can last from three to five years, the only way the fletching will fall off, is if you were to shoot them off. It is well worth the initial $15.95 per dozen.

Durability: 5 out of 5

Like stated before, these wraps will last for up to five years.  They are tuff and will outlast any other wrap on the market. 

Conclusion:

I can say that I am very happy with the results that I received from these wraps.  I fletched up all of my arrows with Quick spin vanes from New Archery Products using the Arizona E-Z Fletch from Arizona Rim Country, and had 100% vane adherence to all the arrow shafts.  Not only will I be able to see my arrows when in flight, but my arrows will look great, for that after shot picture!!
